Steve is one of Britain’s leading political commentators and broadcasters. He is a presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Week in Westminster and has presented BBC series on Blair, Cameron, Miliband and Corbyn. He is currently preparing a major series for Radio 4, ‘The Road to Brexit’. In January he wrote and presented a widely praised series on David Cameron, ‘The Cameron Years’, still available on BBC iplayer. He has also presented an award winning BBC TV series on Modern Prime Ministers and Leadership, during which he delivered unscripted talks to camera for thirty minutes in one take. He is a regular commentator on the BBC and SKY and writes columns for the Guardian, Independent and FT.

His live one man show ‘Rock and Roll Politics’ sells out in both London and at the Edinburgh Festival. For eight years Steve also presented GMTV’s live political show The Sunday Programme.

Total Capital Partners worked with EquityChair to recruit a Chairman for our recent investment in Meter Provida.  Cindy Casciani was careful to listen and understand what was needed not only in terms of skills and experience but also cultural fit.  She provided an excellent short-list of candidates, all of a very high calibre. Throughout the process, Cindy provided continued support as we made our decision.  We were very impressed with the service provided – and we would recommend it to others. We will certainly look to work with EquityChair in the future.”
